Making a Difference for Our Community


Industry

The culture at Ash Brokerage can be summed up in one word: caring. We care about the people we serve and the lives we touch – not just at work, but also in our community!

Our employees give back in many ways. While we know many can – and do – volunteer on their own, we also offer several opportunities to serve others through organized events and activities. Here are just a few examples of the things we do together.

 

Building Dreams

Habitat for Humanity is a cause that’s long been close to our employees’ hearts. Many of us have participated in local builds over the years. This year, several Ash ladies participated in the spring Women Build, leading and working alongside other women from the community.

Giving Life

The Red Cross Bloodmobile stops by our office several times a year, and many employees gladly roll up their sleeves to give the gift of life.

Walking for Others

Several Ash team members raise money for charity by participating in local races or walks. Most recently, a group of employees teamed up to participate in the Northeast Indiana Heart Walk, benefitting the American Heart Association on Sept. 24.

Helping at the Holidays

Throughout the year, our Fort Wayne IMPACT Committee raises money with fun events – bake sales, jeans days, even a March Madness bracket game! During the holiday season, we use the funds to sponsor families in need, and employees donate gift items on their lists. We also donate money to several local causes and fill barrels with gifts for Toys for Tots. Last year, we were able to sponsor two Christmas families and give donations to 13 charities!

Our teams in other locations get involved at the holidays, too! The New Jersey office holds an annual Holiday Help Out Drive, collecting items for local food banks. Last year, they gave 268 pounds of food to the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

The Ash Brokerage family participates in many other great community activities. Though we couldn’t possibly list them all, we’re proud of every single effort our team members make to make a difference in the lives of others.
